Being an avid reader, have you ever thought of writing and becoming an author yourself? Why or why not? Would you ever do it if you had the chance?
When I was going through school and a teacher would ask us to write a story in class, I was always happy to do so. I liked writing assignments in class because I was usually pretty good at it. One teacher even told me I had a really active imagination. This same teacher entered one of my stories in a local writing contest and I ended up doing pretty well in it. I didn’t really expect much going in but I remember being proud of myself. I think I got an honorable mention or something like that.
Anyway, I’ve never thought about making a living out of it and becoming an author. I think it would be nice to do if I had the talents to do it. But I think I’m happy with reading books written by others. I enjoy being immersed in other worlds, even if they aren’t worlds that I’ve created myself.
